Digs for Dogs offer a great alternative to dog boarding kennels.
We provide a Happy Holiday Home for your dog/s with a loving Home Boarding Family whenever you can’t be there.
Happy Holiday Home
We understand and aim to ensure that dog owners can go away with the safe knowledge that their best friend is being loved and cared for. All dogs boarding with Digs for Dogs will get a happy holiday home of their own whilst their owners are away. We have a family of very special home boarders who ensure that your dog has a great holiday too! Our home dog boarders have been carefully selected because of their devotion to dogs – some are currently dog owners, others have owned dogs in the past but now prefer not to have a commitment to a dog of their own. All of our home boarders are at home during the day and offer a one to one service to your four legged friend. They will enjoy a happy stay with everything they have at home including lots of love and attention. We love dogs of all shapes and sizes and we don’t mind if they sleep in the bedroom, pull on the lead, go on the furniture or even hide your favourite shoes!
Making the Right Match
In order to make the right match with one of our dog home boarding families we will initially book an appointment to visit you in your own home and take a detailed profile of your dog or dogs including any behaviour quirks, exercise, sleeping and feeding routine. Selecting the right home boarding family is very important and your input into this process is invaluable. You will want to know where your dog is going, so during our time together you are going to see all of our dog-loving families. They are just like you and me, and guaranteed to meet our extremely high pet sitting standards. You can decide whether your best friend stays in a home with or without a resident dog, depending on his needs. Our home boarders are at home during the day to ensure round the clock care is always provided, especially where puppies, dogs on regular medication and elderly dogs are concerned. We’re in touch with our families regularly, so we will keep you posted during your time away about anything you need to know.
Try a Sleepover
If you are booking a holiday and would like to try our home boarding service for your dog then we would like to offer you an introductory sleepover. Peace of mind knowing that your dog has settled will enable you to enjoy your holiday whilst your best friend enjoys their holiday too. Please ask for further details when registering your dog/s
Door to Door Service
We will arrange to pick up your dog on the date of your departure and transport them in an air conditioned dog friendly, fully insured vehicle to their home boarding family. From experience we have found that your dog will settle so much more with their home boarder if we collect them rather than they would if you were dropping them off.
Pack a Suitcase
You will need to pack a suitcase with all their usual belongings – lead, bedding, bowls, toys, treats – and you will also need to provide sufficient food for the duration of their stay. Your dog will also need to be up-to-date with their vaccinations, worming and flea treatments.
Keep in touch
We will keep in regular contact with the home boarder whilst your dog is under their care and be on hand in case of any emergencies. If you wish, we will send you a text update or email to let you know how your dog is settling in with their home boarding family and send a few pictures so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your own holiday.
